We are now over half way through our staff orientation for the academic year 2015-16.
This year it has been different. We do not have many new staff (though some are yet to arrive). And most of those we do have that are new have been living in Addis Ababa for a while already! So and introduction to culture is almost unnecessary!
But, we are grateful! God has given us so much grace to continue on and be stretched in our capacity to teach and love these young people.
The time table is complete – it was tricky, but it is pretty much done for the secondary school.
In a week, we begin classes. And with changes to the timetable that will throw kids for a few weeks, I will be looking forward to hearing what they (and the other teachers) think about the changes. Whether it is better or worse. Or just different.
Exciting (and busy) times ahead!
